Card Gift Set

I saw the November sketch on the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog and thought it would be perfect to create a set of cards that I could give as part of a teacher gift.  I didn't quite finish quick enough to enter it into their challenge, but definitely wanted to share none the same!

I used my 6x6 paper pads - I don't know how I lived without these before! and stamped images that I had in my stash, all watercoloured with Tombow markers, waiting for me to pull them out. The zigzag stamp is one of Dyan Reaveley's and I added some rub-ons on the right corner and a Tim Holtz Chit-Chat sticker on the top left. I left the insides blank so the recipient could write her own message.

I love the look of the rounded corners!

Since we are into the countdown to Christmas, and this being one gift I can check off my list, I'm entering into Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Countdown to the Holidays and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes!
